Hallo Experts,

I am having a problem with trust relationships on Windows 2003.
Here is he situation, I use 2 Virtual PC's with Windows 2003 Enterprise installed on each of them.
Forwarders added on both machines, on relacje.relacyjnosc.local there is an testy.local domain name added and on exchange.testy.local there is relacyjnosc.local added.

The error is This operation cannot be performed on the current domain. ?!?!?


The domain functional level is Windows 2003 on both of then, as well as the dns has been tesed  :
> set type=all
> _ldap._tcp.dc._msdcs.testy.local
Server:  localhost
Address:  127.0.0.1

_ldap._tcp.dc._msdcs.testy.local        SRV service location:
          priority       = 0
          weight         = 100
          port           = 389
          svr hostname   = exchange.testy.local
exchange-telgaz.testy.local     internet address = 192.168.2.185

and the other one :

C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator>nslookup
Default Server:  localhost
Address:  127.0.0.1

> set type=all
> _ldap._tcp.dc._msdcs.relacyjnosc.local
Server:  localhost
Address:  127.0.0.1

_ldap._tcp.dc._msdcs.relacyjnosc.local  SRV service location:
          priority       = 0
          weight         = 100
          port           = 389
          svr hostname   = relacja.relacyjnosc.local
relacja.relacyjnosc.local       internet address = 192.168.2.205




The nslookup tool after you type the domain name in it shows the IP address.

C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator>nslookup
Default Server:  localhost
Address:  127.0.0.1

> relacyjnosc.local
Server:  localhost
Address:  127.0.0.1

Name:    relacyjnosc.local
Address:  192.168.2.205

> testy.local
Server:  localhost
Address:  127.0.0.1

Name:    testy.local
Address:  192.168.2.185

So everything looks good, but still the problem accurs for whatever reason,

The question is ... why ? is there any problem with VPC and trusts ? there shouldn.t be.
I also found description of this problem saying that the problem is with the domain and NETBIOS names but after changing it ( installing AD one more time) the problem is still there.

Any suggestion will be appreciated .

Regards,

Pawel

Hi Pawel,

Check the event logs on both servers, and see if you notice anything.
A DCDIAG on each machine may also provide useful information.
The NLTEST command may help to troubleshoot Secure Channels...

Are both machines DNS server? With client stack configured to point to themselves?
Have you tried to host each others's DNS zones as secondary?

Also, did you build both VM separately? Maybe they share the same SID...

Let us know...

Hi there,

It turned out that the problem was with the Virtual PCs, At the moment I replaces one Virtual machine with existing one and the other windows 2003 is still based on VPC but everything is flying. Trust relationships were created without anyy problems. Thanks for your help...

Regards,

Pawel
